Pity the eight poor little Gosselite children. Their mom takes to national TV to diss their dad, than deserts them on a trip to a luxurious resort to shoot her fab abs. Has she chosen fame over family?
The kids were forced to fly large, expensive-looking kites for the cameras even though the wind was blowing more than 20 miles per hour. Not a single kite made it into the air as the crew struggled with the kids' kites and Kate adjusted her black sundress.
I spent a very brief time counseling Jon Gosselin to get his kids off the show. It's not that fame is itself a bad thing. It is, rather, fame without foundation, celebrity without balance, that is so deeply corrosive.
It's one thing to voluntarily relinquish all pretense to one's one privacy, but totally different to spill the most intimate details of the lives of others, particularly if they aren't around to defend themselves.
